Since stunt scooter riding exploded on the scene a few years ago, many of the riders gained extreme popularity along with the sport. However, there have been a few scooter riders that even transcended the sport itself.

It’s been years since then and the most famous riders grew up in front of our eyes some sticking to their original passion of pro scooters and other following new passions. Keep reading to see who the absolute most famous riders are.
The Most Famous Scooter Riders Are…
#5. Raymond Warner
Starting off the list is Mr. Envy Scooters himself Raymond Warner! Kids everywhere love R-Dubbs content my son tunes in every single time he releases a video. “Mom guess what R dubb did” was his favorite conversation starter. What I personally love about him is creating wholesome, original content is like breathing for him. Keeping things engaging and entertaining on YouTube isn’t easy but he does an excellent job.
Dakota Schuetz was responsible for so much progression in the world of scooter riding, along with brother Hunter they championed scooters as a real action sport all over the world. Kota has always been so talented and technical in his riding, helping him to do trick combinations that seem impossible. He recently launched his own brand KOTA which was popping up all over the place but has since lost a lot of momentum. Nonetheless Kota will always be a multiple world champion and go down in history as one of the greatest scooter riders of all time.
#3. Funk Bros
Funk Bros are third on the list, Capron and Corey have been crazy talented riders for what seems like forever. Both have competed at the highest level winning multiple pro scooter contests. Riding for Apex scooters.
